Just so I understand correctly, we're you getting 149mgp completely on electric ? I'm sorry I'm still learning a lot about this world lol.

I'd like to see 45-50mpg conservatively with my 2014 Spark as my daily driver.

Torque will likely give him ambient temp, coolant temp, transmission temp, and intake air temp in one display.

Yes, I had a 2016 Spark EV which is an purely electric car with a 82 mile range.

45 mpg should be doable with a gas Spark driving on the highway if you are willing to slow down a bit. You will see a big difference between a steady 55 mph, 65 mph, and 75 mph.

That's a good point, yet a physical coolant temp gauge would still be useful when his phone's battery dies.
